No Scraping By

The other day I was putting on some make-up and I grabbed my eye liner, the glimmer stick kind, and just started using it. It didn't seem to be working as well as usual and I realized I hadn't given it the usual little twist to make sure there was enough pencil to work without the plastic case scraping me. I mentally shrugged and figured it was enough to get me by.

But as I continued scraping with the glimmer stick it hit me, I do something similar with God and His power in my life. Just like I had available to me all the eye liner I needed, and more, with a simple twist of the pencil, I have all the power I need by simply asking God. It's just a matter of tapping in to what I already have in God.

Let me tell ya, I stopped scraping that glimmer stick along my eye and gave it that little twist. I saw just how ridiculous and lazy I was for being satisfied with scraping when I didn't have to. I don't want to just scrape by when it comes to God and His power in my life. I want that turned up so it can easily flow.

"I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." ~John 10:10

Let's not be satisfied with just scraping by when it comes to God in our lives.


  1. (((Patty))), thank you for touching my day with God’s love.
    Perfect comparison, more of Him is ours for the receiving. May your day overflow with more of Jesus!

  2. I love how you can turn the ordinary things of life into spiritual lessons.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
